Friendly URLs was implemented in

This means assets can be found using instead of

However, these URLs don't really get used by VersionOne. Internally and in notification e-mails, the "oidtoken" version is used, containing an ID that's totally meaningless to users. If you then copy/paste that link somewhere else -- like a chat app, for example -- it doesn't provide any info and thus takes extra time to investigate.

For example, if someone posts in chat "Hey, who is working on ?" Everyone has to click to see if that's their issue.

If someone posts "Hey, who is working on ?" now it can save a click because a developer is likely to recognize that from their current branch name, for example. It's also still a clickable link, again saving the time of someone having to do a multi-step lookup process.
